The governorship candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) in the November 6 Anambra election, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah, has moved his campaign to Lagos state.
Naija News reports that the reason for the move will not be unconnected with the killings and violence perpetrated by unknown gunmen in the South East region.
Ubah’s campaign vehicles were spotted moving on major roads in Lagos, while his supporters were seen following the campaign train to some major markets in the state.
Some of the Lagos markets visited by Ubah and his running mate, Dr Okey Eze, were Agric Building Materials Market, Odunade Market, and United Marbles & Allied products market.
Earlier, some of the candidates at an event organized by the Association of Anambra State Development Unions, AASDU, Lagos state, said security of lives and properties would be their topmost priority if elected as the governor of the state.
The candidates promised to leverage the commercial and enterprising capacity of the Igbo people to create an economic model for the rest of Nigeria to emulate.
Some of the candidates at the event include Ben Etiaba of Action Alliance; Dr. Godwin Maduka of Accord Party; Akachukwu Nwankpo of African Democratic Congress; Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party and Dr. Obiora Nwankwo of the Zenith Labour Party.
